We recently visited this beautiful plantation one afternoon with my family. The house is amazing and the history intriguing! Donovan was our tour guide and he did a fabulous job telling the story of it all and kept our boys spellbound for the entire time!...More

This was an extremely informative tour. Our tour guide, Jessica, was pleasant and prepared to provide answers to any question she was asked. Her delivery was clear and friendly often peppered with light banter that made the whole experience delightful. The building itself is a...More

Everything about Nottoway Plantation is big and novel and luxurious. Located at 31025 Highway 1 in White Castle, Louisiana, on the River Road overlooking the Mississippi River, it is the largest extant antebellum plantation house in the South with 53,000 square feet of floor space....More

Worst place ever. Bed had dirty sheets with pubic hair from previous guests. Disgraceful. Horrible. We had no towels. The reception did not answer. This is a barely one star quality hotel. And, we will ask for our money back tomorrow. We finally found a...More

So much of the experience is about the guide. We had a wonderful guide, dressed in period attire. She encouraged photos as well as sitting on the chairs. It all felt very welcoming and she had a wealth of knowledge. I especially appreciated that she...More

Got engaged for Christmas Day at breakfast. Food was good nothing special. Service was good. We were not greeted on the way into plantation. Grounds we’re beautiful and the movie theatre was interesting.

Our riverboat cruise (American Queen) docked here overnight, literally within walking distance of the plantation house. I was impressed with the all-white ballroom but every room in the house is stunning.

We had a wonderful tour of the plantation house and grounds. Our guide was very knowledgeable and dressed in wonderful period costume and provided great commentary on the house.

I believe the tour at Nottoway took about an hour and I believe their last tour begins at 4 (you may want to call them - (225) 545-2730 to verify and book tickets). Thought the tour was very good and interesting. Beautiful... More

Friday afternoon traffic westbound I-10 (3 Replies)
We have an event to attend at Nottoway Plantation at 6:30PM on a Friday evening. We'll be driving straight from work on the MS Gulf Coast. The question is -- how much time do we need to factor in for Friday rush hour delays around Baton Rouge on I-12W/I-10W? Would we be better off splitting down to I-10E and crossing the river down near Donaldsonville? (Google Maps shows this adding 20 minutes.) thanks!!

Now I'm thinking we should maybe take I-12W to I-55S to I-10 to Nottoway -- that way we avoid NOLA and Baton Rouge. Any thoughts?

Hi folks I was thinking of picking up a car at 8:00 am on a friday and heading out to Nottoway plantation and then driving back and doing the laura plantation . Mapquest says 90 minutes from no to plantation with traffic is that accurate at those hours?

Response fromwhitenights12|
That sounds accurate. To save driving time, you could do Laura and another one also located in Vacherie instead of driving all the way to White Castle for Nottoway.

Great RIver Road Plantation vs Natchez (3 Replies)
We are headed to Natchez when we leave NOLA. I have already purchased a tour of Nottoway Plantation for us to visit along the way. We can either visit another plantation along the Great River Road (Laura or Houmas House) or plan to arrive earlier in Natchez so we can take in some of the sights there. We will be spending the night in Natchez. We will have very limited time to spend in Natchez the following day because we are planning to spend the day travelling the Natchez Trace Parkway with...More
